    One of my favorite species! Had a couple different species several years back. They did well for a while then unfortunately crashed. Recently picked up a Scaph grande to try again. Your swerti bloom seems unusually yellow -- all the ones I had seen [including the one I lost] have been purple.

    Most remind me of a mouth complete with 'mustache' ready to bite,

    it seems to be a bit of a variable species colorwise.
